Vatos Urban Tacos (South Beach)

3338 Wishlisted
One of Korea’s hottest restaurants, Vatos Urban Tacos, has come to Singapore. Influenced by Mexican street tacos in Los Angeles and home-cooked Korean meals, the menu consists of creations like the Kimchi Carnitas Fries, Galbi Tacos, and Spicy Chicken Quesadillas. Vatos Urban Tacos has since garnered praise for providing exciting new tastes using only the freshest ingredients. CNN named Vatos the “Hottest New Restaurant in Seoul,” and The Daily Meal chose Vatos as one of the “10 Best American Restaurants Outside of the States”. Vatos Singapore is located in the beautiful former National Armoury Building in South Beach and can seat up to 80 people indoors and another 30 people outdoors.

Highly recommend the baja (fish) ($17 for 3). The chimichurri chicken is good and meaty too. My friends and I enjoyed also the prawn a previous visit.

The carne asada is quite chewy and too spicy for us. Braised carnitas has a lot of meat but nothing special.

I like soft flour tortillas and these were warm and super soft.

Sundays happy hour is 12 noon to 7pm one for one certain beers.

Really good value using #burpplebeyond

Pork Belly Tacos: 5/5
Chimichurri Chicken Tacos: 4/5
Kimchi Carnitas Fries: 4.5/5
& 2 pints of Stockade 8-bit IPA 😋

It’s my fourth time back here and I’ve ordered pork belly tacos every. Single. TIME!! They never disappoint. Fries were really great but could do with more cheese/sauce.

The jalapeño spring rolls is very innovative & tasty. Tacos are very good too!!

Second time here, food’s alright. However, poor service is the way to spoil a customer’s dining experience. For those using Burpple Beyond, be sure to mention it loudly to the servers or risk getting interrogated at the cashier later why you didn’t mention or which server did you talk to. Way to ruin your mood. That said, it may be just one rude staff so count your lucky stars who you may meet.

Went to Vatos Urban Tacos and had an extremely heavy carb loaded meal! Went into food coma right after, really ate a lot. But boy, was it good.

We bought their Korean Po Boy and Vatos Style (chicken) burritos, their signature Kimchi Carnitas Fries, Barbacoa Jalapeño Spring Rolls, Bacon and Blue Cheese Guacamole (served with tortilla, and there were candied walnuts in the guac which was a nice touch) and lastly, their ever so popular Baja Fish Tacos.

$102 dollars worth of amazing food made more affordable by Chope, having purchased their discount voucher during the birthday sale. The food is on the pricier side, but the portions were pretty big! Everything was just too good, including their prompt and professional service! Make this your go to place for Mexican!

Rating :5/5

Off their signature “Urban Tacos”, we got their Baja Fish ($10 for 2 tacos/ $14 for 3 tacos), Chimichurri Chicken tacos ($10 for 2 tacos/ $14 for 3 tacos) to share and two glasses of Sweet Georgia Peach Iced Tea. The more refreshing option of the two, the Chimichurri Chicken was pleasantly spicy with a sweet tangy chimichurri salsa coupled with crunchy lettuce, sour cream and mexican cheese. But the clear winner for me is their tempura beer-battered white fish. Fresh and flaky, the fillets enclosed with the crisp batter were kept moist and was nicely seasoned. The accompanying pico de gallo (salsa) and apple coleslaw adding a lovely sweetness and bite while cutting the richness of the fish. The bit of heat from the chipotle mayo smeared over the soft tortillas was also a nice touch.
